People's Power candidate Kim Ki-hyun won a majority of the votes and was elected as the new party leader.
It was a landslide victory, more than double the votes of second-place candidate Ahn Cheol-so.
Chen Haram received 163.52% of the vote and Hwang Kyo-an 93.2%.
In his acceptance speech, Kim, who ran with the so-called Yun Sentiment, expressed his ambition to lead the country to a landslide victory in the next general election in the spirit of solidarity, inclusion and prosperity.

The Supreme Committee, which selects five members, including one youth Supreme Committee, also saw a large number of "pro-Yun" candidates.
Candidates Kim Jae-won, Kim Byung-min, Cho Su-jin, and Thae Yong-ho won the Supreme Council seats, while Jang Ye-chan won the election with a landslide of votes.
One day before the one-year anniversary of his presidential victory, President Yoon Seok-yeol visited the convention hall and emphasized the unity of the party by revisiting the ceremony he performed as a candidate.

The formation of a "pro-Yun" leadership from the party leader to the top committee member can be interpreted as a reflection of the party's intention to hold next year's general elections under President Yoon Seok-yeol.
Representative Kim Ki-hyun, who begins his term with the election, will visit the Memorial Hall today (2th) and begin his first party affairs schedule by presiding over a meeting of the Supreme Council.
